Boy Out of the Country by Felix Nobis

7:30pm to 8:45pm Thursday 09 May 2019 (Daily event)

A fast and funny Australian play about family, property and the price of progress, from celebrated theatre-makers Company of Rogues.

Troubled country boy, Hunter, returns home from the city after a mysterious seven-year absence to find the family home sold into a development, mum in care, and his brother Gordon in charge.
In this moment of shifting economies and loyalties Hunter goes in search of answers.

But is he ready for the truth?

Written in vernacular verse, reminiscent of the poetic tradition of Banjo Patterson, Boy Out of the Country is a bush ballad for contemporary regional life. Here, old Australia meets new - a country cop comes to terms with rapid social change, a backyard is less important than extra bedrooms, and places that were once familiar change before your eyes.

Directed by Erica Lovell this fun and surprising production features a stellar local cast including Tom Harwood (CO:OK, Things Not to do After a Break Up), Jason Glover (Headlands, Van Dieman’s Land), Jeannie Gee (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Stan Kouros (Actors Centre Australia) and Amelia Robertson-Cuninghame (Anatomy of an Offence, Love Child).
